It depends on what kind of view you're creating. You are probably working on a view for content. So the filters are limited to those related to content. You can add a relationship "Content: Author" (Relate content to the user who created it.) under "Advanced Options" to add more filter criteria to the filter criteria list (User will show up in the filter list then, too).

Or you try creating a view for users.

You first need to go to "Add relationships" to Content: Author Now go back to "Add filter criteria" and you will see the user filter and a lot more user information you can use.

This was a change from Views 2 to Views 3 I think.
